Event Description

What is good in itself? This is a major question within axiology, which is at the core of Value Theory. In a more expansive sense, Value Theory extends out to include evaluation in moral, social, and political philosophy, as well as philosophy of religion and aesthetics. 

This one-day workshop will bring philosophers together for a day of high-level discussions on Value Theory. The presenters will be

Garrett Cullity (ANU)
Thomas Hurka (Toronto)
Mark Johnston (Princeton)
Nandi Theunissen (Pittsburgh)
Leif Wenar (Stanford)

This will be a pre-read workshop, with papers circulated in advance to all participants. Discussion of each paper will start right in, without a summary of the paper by the presenter.

Faculty, postdocs, and graduate students from any Philosophy department are very welcome to join the workshop, as are all Princeton faculty, postdocs, and graduate students. If you don’t fit one of these descriptions, please fill in the box on the registration form explaining how Value Theory is important to your academic research.

The workshop is full, and registration is closed.

A light breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be served.
